“Quiet relaxing stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Checked in at this Athens Super 8 by chance. Had a pleasant stay for a good price. Have been back several times. Play to stay again in the near future. Staff always friendly and pleasant. Room was clean and everything was in working order. Location is convenient to two highways with many restaurants. The rooms are inside the building which I prefer.

Room Tip: I always request first floor room with king bed.

We checked in expecting to stay one night and ended up staying three. The managers (husband and wife?) were great - friendly and accommodating. We found the room to be very clean and well maintained. Will remember this one in the future as we frequently travel down I-65.

My wife and have I been staying at the Super 8 Athens, Alabama for nearly two years. The manager and his wife have always been very accommodating to me and my wife's needs. They are always courteous and pleasant upon check in and always meet my request as needed.
The housekeeping staff,managed by Peggy , does an outstanding job keeping the hotel clean and the rooms organized. She is a very dedicated individual and is pleasant to talk to.
We always look forward to our stay in Athens. Makes my travels easier when I know that there are these kind of people waiting to help us after a long day of driving. We would never consider staying anywhere else.

Room Tip: Excellent location. Close to 4 very good restaurants.

Close to Interstate and dining choices. Good value, super clean, and efficient check-in process. Room was very nice and odor free.

This room was by far the worst we have ever stayed in. The TV remote off and on button did not work and the picture was all green. The pocket door to the shower/toilet was stuck inside the wall and we had to jiggle it for about 10 min. to work it loose. In order for the toilet to flush, you had to hold down the handle. I would not take off my socks, the carpet was nasty and the room had a smell that we finally figured out was the left over smoke order, even though we had a non smoking room.

You get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else
